Research and competencies evaluation
in Gestalt therapy trainings

 

 

 

Organized by the Research Committee of the European Association for Gestalt Therapy (EAGT)

Supported by Polish Society for Gestalt Psychotherapy (PTPG)

26th -29th March 2020 Warsaw

The seminar is organized by the EAGT Research Committee and reflects the need of supporting the teaching-learning community among trainers, who teach Gestalt therapy. It is the first one of a series of seminars dedicated to Gestalt therapy trainers to help them implementing research in their training and start evaluating through the competency’s lens. It will have two parts: 1 – How to implement RESEARCH in the training programs The research part will focus on introducing psychotherapy research through a fundamental clinical issue, on using some simple research methodologies for students and on writing a research based single case study as a final paper at the end of a training. 2 – How to support self-evaluation of competencies of trainees. The competency part will focus on the self-evaluation of competencies as a way of continuous reflective learning in a training and will offer guidelines in order to do so. The seminar will also offer a space for co-creating common knowledge in these topics through sharing and discussing participants’ experiences and needs from their own trainers’ practice. Currently, the EAP plans to move towards the  European Qualifications Framework (EQF), a  credit-based system with a strong focus on meeting learning outcomes. We will expose to you the way it is intended to work and some possible consequences.

This is intended to enable a much easier comparison between national qualifications and should also mean that people do not have to repeat their learning if they move to another country. The core of the EQF concerns eight reference levels describing what a learner knows, understands and is able to do – ‚learning outcomes’. 11:00h -11:30h Coffee Break 11:30h – 13:00h Integration of the seminar and closing
